WAR ON BUCKET SHOPS. 1 Nation-Wide Cril ., lie Started by the Government. I Washington, April 2. Uncle Sam has I : .'.no to the aid of the speculative lambs. j After they have been "buffeted and gored laud bitten by the bulls and bears of Wall ir-t and the lesser financial mart Uu ughout the country, the United ! states Government has stepped in to ( save the mutton. ' The initial step in the national move merit for the protection of the small and innocent investor caivie to-day when Federal representatives raided bucket shops in New York, Chicago, Baltimore, St.. Louis. Pittsburg. Cincinnati, Boston ;ud Jersey City. ' Other raids will follow, is the predic , lion made to-night, and just where the ni vt blow will fall is a matter of a great ueul of speculation. In many instances t!,e Government will have the support -1 the various States in the prosecution of brokers who are alleged to be "bucket ing" their orders. New York State gave the first intimation to-day when word came from Albany that Wall street is to be investigated. The carnival of in vestigation which has been swept into high and low places in politics is now to to cover the biggest financial mart of America. '...'"'' The warrants served to-day were is sued by the Supreme Court of tho Dis u iet of Columbia, and were based upon indictments found in this city, charging ' the financial backers of bucketshops with violation of the Federal statutes. The raids are the beginning of a na tional crusade begun by Attorney Gen eral Wickersham to wipe out the bucket shop business in this country. Most of the principals indicted live in New York. The firms concerned are: E. S. Boggs & Co., with branch offices in Philadelphia; Price & Co., with branch offices in Baltimore, and the Standard Stock fe Grain Dealers, with branch offi ces in Jersey City, Philadelphia, Cincin nati, St. Louis, Chicago and rittsburg. The headquarters of the concerns are in New York. The investigation of the ramifications of the bucketshops was assigned by the State Department to Attorney General Wickersham. In a short time so much evidence had been accumulated that the Attorney General became personally in terested. His investigations showed that the bucketshop business was controlled by a group of unscrupulous speculators, less than fifty in number, in New York, Chicago, St. Louis, rittsburg, Cincin nati, Baltimore, Boston and Jersey City. There was no Federal law under which the Attorney General could proceed against the bucketshops, but there is a law "for the protection of the citizens of the District of Columbia," and an act of Congress passed March 1, 1909, relating to bucketshops. Under these laws Attorney General Wickersham inv pannelled a jury, which found the in dictments and handed them down in the Federal Court. United States Marshals are working in unison the country over to carrying out the plans for tho capture of the big fish." Louis Cella, a millionaire broker of St. Louis, who was indicted in Washing ton, is believed to be in New York. William Price, of Baltimore, has al ready surrendered himself. Richard Preusser, who was arrested in New York, holds valuable informa tion which the Government will try to secure. There is a feeling in the air about the Department of Justice that the bucket- shop industry will receive a blow which it can never recover from. Attorney General Wickersham has personally in spected the affair and he will make a strenuous effort to send at least some of the "big fish" to jail. It is said the original motive for the investigation lay in the numerous scan dals arising from Government clerks and subordinates playing the market n bucketshops. We favor a direct vote of the people by counties on the same day as being the fairest mode of expressing the popu lar will, believing that such a system will preserve the county as a unit of the State, as was intended by the founders of the Government, and will afford the surest way to prevent fraud at the polls, And strengthen antivj?reserve the propor tionate representation of the counties in party nomination; and Whereas, Your committee feels that it is its duty to carry out the will of the party as thus expressed by its party platform.
